About the Chula Vista Police Department

The Chula Vista Police Department is organized into four divisions: Administrative Services Division; Patrol Operations Division; Investigations Division; and, Fiscal Operations/Research Division.

The Administrative Services Division of the Chula Vista Police Department consists of the Professional Standards Unit, Police Support Services, Crime Lab, Public Information, Community Relations and the City Jail. The Investigations Division consists of numerous units whose officers, detectives and civilians, with the exception of the School Resource Unit, work predominately plain-clothes assignments. Its units include Investigations, Crimes of Violence, Special Investigations and associated task forces, Family Protection, Property Crimes and School Resource Officers. Fiscal Operations/Research Division, commanded by a civilian manager, consists of the Budget and Analysis Unit as well as the Research and Analysis Unit.

The Patrol Operations Division consists of Patrol, Traffic, DUI Enforcement, S.T.O.P. Program, Street/Gang Team, Technology and Communications. According to the Chula Vista Police Department, “The Patrol Division provides quality law enforcement to the residents and visitors to the City of Chula Vista 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This uniformed division embraces the concept of Community Oriented Policing and strives to further enhance it's partnership with the community. Patrol division officers work 10-hour days, 4 days a week.

Supplementing the individual officers beat knowledge is the Tough On Crime (TOC) program. TOC develops information from the Crime Analysis Unit as well as information from Officers and Detectives, and then utilizes crime-mapping techniques to depict a picture of what is happening throughout the city in a simple and concise manner. This information allows Officers to be more aware of crime within the city and assists officers and supervisors in making informed patrol decisions.”
